Beyond Bashing: A Faith Response to End Anti-LGBT Violence

Friday, February 8, 2013 - 7:00pm to Sunday, February 10, 2013 - 12:15pm

Hate crimes based on sexual orientation account for 20% of all hate crimes reported to the FBI in recent years and violence against the transgender community continues at an appalling rate as well. We know that anti-gay religious voices contribute to creating a climate that allows these terrifying crimes to continue at high rates. Many faith leaders, however, are firm in our commitment that all people deserve to live in safety and freedom and that violence is never the appropriate response to our differences.
